PALFINGER AG operates a career portal for all companies of the PALFINGER group, which handles all recruitment agendas.

Stored Information

It is of great value for PALFINGER to protect your data. We process your personal information on our career portal exclusively in agreement with the following fundamentals and in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations. The following described privacy policy applies solely to the career portal of PALFINGER. The general data protection provisions of the PALFINGER career portal can be viewed at the following links:

Privacy Policy PALFINGER Career Portal
Privacy Policy PALFINGER Website

Personal data in the recruiting process is understood to mean all indications that allow a conclusion back to yourself as a person. This includes information such as your name, e-mail address, telephone number, home-address, data of your CV and other documents you provide for the recruiting process. PALFINGER processes your data exclusively to the extent permitted by law and as far as it meets your approval.

In order to apply for a job at PALFINGER or to use other services on our career portals it is necessary to create an application profile. The profile includes your name, your e-mail address and your country of residence, as well as any other provided information.

Additionally, you agree to that further data beside the mandatory data and your voluntarily provided information can be collected and implemented (added) to your account automatically when registering a talent-profile:

Furthermore, you will be asked about the visibility settings for your profile. Depending on your settings the profile can

Serve as the basis only for single applications (Visibility option “Only recruiters that supervise jobs that I apply for”)
Be provided for a direct approach with the option of visibility only for recruiters in my country of residence (visibility option “all recruiters in my country”)
Or the option of visibility for recruiters all over the world (visibility option “all recruiters worldwide”).

The creation of an applicant profile does not yet constitute an application. If you apply for an advertised job, the application contains the information you deposit in your applicant profile as well as other documents and data provided by you. These also contain personal data and will be handled with the appropriate care.

Purpose of processing and deleting data

The processing of your application data  exclusively takes place in the context of our personnel selection procedures. Usage of the data for other purposes is expressly excluded.

A deletion or change of the application profile in total or individual information or settings (in particular settings about the visibility of your application profile) in your application profile is possible at all times in the setting options of your profile.

In case of a cancellation of the applicant profile or the revocation of the privacy policy your account information and also all ongoing applications addressed to us will be withdrawn.

The following deletion dates will be applied (the applicant’s country of residence):

Country Deletion date applicant profile Deletion date application
European Union & other countries 24 months inactivity 6 months after completion of the application process
USA No automated deletion No automated deletion

If your applicant profile should be available for direct talks by our recruiters, we ask you to ensure that the visibility options have been regulated appropriately (see section “stored information”). Via your applicant profile a notification service can be activated. This notification service informs you via e-mail about vacancies advertised at PALFINGER, as far as the match the search criteria specified by you. The search criteria can be adjusted at any time in the options of your applicant profile.

Recipient and transmission of data

Recipients of the data are exclusively employees of the PALFINGER group. All employees who have access to your data as part of the personnel selection process are bound by data protection and confidentiality. Transmission within the PALFINGER group is only possible with your agreement and transmission to third parties outside the PALFINGER group is excluded.

A possible transmission of personal data to third countries takes place exclusively within the group of companies of the PALFINGER group: PALFINGER group
